Exclusive Interview With Coach K: Day 5

This is the last of five clips of a June 17 exclusive interview with Mike Krzyzewski that The Chronicle will post this week. In this excerpt, Coach K talks his “last big project” while coaching at Duke: the restoration of Cameron Indoor Stadium. Giving Cameron a facelift was mentioned as a hypothetical in “Unrivaled Ambition,” the athletic department’s strategic plan, and was met with some early resistance.

Make sure you leave your thoughts about potential Cameron renovations in the comments section below.
